Contentious Probate Solicitor
- Legal 500 team
- Unrivalled exposure to HNW work
- Best flexibility in the market
- Progression – strong growth ambitions for Private Client department
Our client, a full-service national law firm, is seeking an NQ Private Client Solicitor or a solicitor with up to two years PQE to join its Legal 500 contentious probate team in Birmingham.
Not only does this role come with a great salary and the chance to work from home four days per week, but the opportunity to develop your career prospects very quickly, as you’ll be working directly with leading solicitors on high-quality private wills, trusts and estate dispute matters.
What’s more, the firm is committed to further growth and is investing heavily in its private client division to support the strong flow of work coming from the firm’s commercial divisions.
We think this client is a bit of a gem – because it has all the perks of a national, with the heart of a regional.
Its commitment to people over profits is demonstrated by the fact that team members stay for an average of six years – which is well above the industry average. If you needed more evidence, look to its roster of accreditations, including Stonewall, Disability Confident and Halo Hair Code.
In addition to a competitive salary, you’ll get an enhanced annual leave entitlement, plus the opportunity to buy more, an additional two days off per year to take part in charity work, a health cash plan, and access to lots of initiatives to support your physical and mental wellbeing.
The right candidate will have experience in or exposure to contentious probate matters. The firm is also open to hearing you if you have a general litigation background or currently work in non-contentious private client but would like to develop a career in contentious probate.
